EPFL is one of the two federal technical schools (university) in Switzerland. Like the ETH in Zurich, it has three missions: education of students, scientific research and technology transfer. EPFL is located near Lausanne on the shores of the Lake Geneva. It has a campus of more than 10,000 people. The school stimulates collaboration between students, professors, researchers and entrepreneurs. These daily interactions give rise to new and work in science, technology and architecture.

Bioengineers at EPFL have created miniature intestines in a dish that match up anatomically and functionally to the real thing better than any other lab-grown tissue models. The biological complexity and longevity of the new organoid technology is an important step towards enabling drug testing, personalized medicine, and perhaps, one day, transplantations.

Following a time of cultural scarcity, ArtLab is celebrating the start of the new academic year with GIFF PLUG x EPFL ARTLAB: an open-air cinema at the heart of the EPFL campus. Four evenings of screenings under the stars will be presented, with a customized program prepared by the Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF). These screenings are free and open to all, but registration is required. September 17 and 25 at 20h

The Catalyst Fund - supported by the Bertarelli Foundation - has selected six research projects to fund this year. Led by professors from EPFL and other Swiss Universities, these projects all aim to develop new treatment options for neurological disorders.

Campus - Sep 14

EPFL classes will start on Monday, 14 September. Thanks to a rotating system of in-person and online instruction, no more than a third of the student body will be on campus at any one time.

Electroengineering - Sep 10

Researchers have created a single chip that combines a transistor and micro-fluidic cooling system. Managing the heat generated in electronics is a huge problem, especially with the constant push to reduce the size and pack as many transistors as possible in the same chip.
